"Initiate A Plastic Bag Ban" by Ted Duboise

"Initiate A Plastic Bag Ban" is an environmental guidebook for starting a
plastic bag ban in your hometown. Easy to read, the book chapters include:
"Problems with Plastic Bags", "Elements of an Ordinance", "Getting City
Hall's Attention", and "Resources" that will help in your campaign.

Initiate A Plastic Bag Ban is written by Ted Duboise, Publisher of ‘Plastic
Bag Ban Report’. Duboise has been monitoring and tracking plastic bag bans
across the U.S. and around the globe for over four years. In writing the
book, Duboise draws from his vast knowledge of plastic bag ordinances and
plastic pollution to lay out a solid, workable plan of action.

He brings you the stories of grassroots efforts by people in several
jurisdictions who have been successful in getting City Councils to adopt
plastic bag regulations. He gives examples of what worked for them.
Duboise also included a "Resource" guide which refers to successful
ordinances, ways to get your campaign noticed, government sources of data,
and a sample petition to be used in a plastic bag ban campaign.

"So many people across the nation have asked for this material", stated
Duboise. The book will answer all their questions. Plastic bag bans and
disposable bag bans have exploded across the world. More and more people
are taking notice of the extreme amount of plastic pollution in our
oceans. They seek ways to reduce our impact on the environment. The sheer
volume of plastic bags used today is staggering. In fact, over 90 billion
plastic bags are unaccounted for in the U.S. Are they in our oceans?
